KE11
KE11 in "Expressway" colours sits alongside 4 sister vehicles in CIE tours livery in Broadstone garage in 1985. It may be fair comment to note that perhaps the Bombardier inter-city fleet of coaches were the most despised of the Bombardier family. Devised from a consultants report eminating from very poor performance with Leyland, and Leylands indifferent attitude toward large customer, CIE, they looked elsewhere for their buses. Designed by German firm "FFG", and built by Bombardier, the plan was to introduce, initially 3 types, inter-city, urban single deck, and urban double deck. Various corporate changes saw over 800 buses built, but with the exception of the "KR" rural type, the rest were judged unsatisfactory
